How do I use the "New" rpms supplied by nvidia for RedHat 8
I'm really new to Linux and have a laptop with GeForce 2GO on it. I've read lots of the posts about RedHat 8, but none of them seems to talk to the RPM (the single one on http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux_nforce_1.0-0246)
Are these not the drivers to use? If they are, how do you use them? I've installed the RedHat 8, but nothing changes in the "display" configuration window. What do I need to do to get this to work?
Thanks in advance for your help

Those are nForce drivers, for nForce chipset motherboards. Is that what your laptop has, an nForce chipset? If not, those aren't going to do you any good.
If you want 3D acceleration for your nVidia video card, then you need the drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li...splay_1.0-3123 -- the nForce ones, AFAIK, don't do anything for video.
